Literati Book Club Lawsuit

Literati Book Subscription Lawsuit

Literati Book Club Lawsuit

Literati is a children’s book club and monthly subscription service. The company sends monthly boxes to subscribers, with books organized by age and reading level. When someone wishes to unsubscribe from the service, however, things can become difficult. An investigation by the Los Angeles false advertising lawyers at Tauler Smith LLP has uncovered that many consumers who purchase subscriptions to the Literati Book Club find themselves stuck in a service where there is no manner to unsubscribe after they have signed up through the Literati website. This is a violation of California law, and it may entitle certain subscribers to remuneration.

If you have encountered a problem unsubscribing from Literati, please contact us immediately, as you may be eligible to file a civil lawsuit and receive financial compensation.

Literati Book Club Violates California Automatic Renewal Law

California’s Automatic Renewal Law (ARL), which is codified in Cal. Bus. & Prof. Code §§ 17600, requires businesses to clearly and conspicuously explain to the consumer any automatic renewal offer terms in the contract. More specifically, the ARL requires the automatic renewal offer to have a “cost-effective, timely, and easy-to-use mechanism for cancellation.”

Our legal team believes that Literati violates California law because, among other things:

  1. Literati does not provide subscribers to its book club with an explanation of its cancellation policy before a subscription to the Literati Book Club is purchased.
  2. Literati does not disclose when or how much subscribers will be charged.
  3. Literati does not provide a clear or easy method for subscribers to cancel online.

Literati Book Club May Violate the California Consumer Privacy Act

Tauler Smith LLP is also investigating Literati’s business practice of collecting children’s data in order to “track, profile, and target children with targeted advertising.” Buried in its terms of use, Literati admits that it shares the personal data of subscribers’ children with third parties. This is a significant admission because new privacy laws protect you and your children from companies like Literati.

For example, under the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), online businesses like Literati that track children must ask consumers of their services if they are 16 years of age or older. If Literati does not get valid consent, Literati is engaged in illegal activity. Beyond any possible criminal implications, Literati could also be civilly liable for violating your privacy rights when it harvests the personal information of your children.
